Obama: To Sue Or Not To Sue, That Is The Question Follow Comments Following Comments Unfollow Comments I wish I could say that House Speaker John Boehners developing plan to sue President Obama for abuses of executive power is a good idea. I really do. The record of such abuse is long and significant, from unilaterally suspending and delaying portions of Obamacare to altering fundamental aspects of immigration law by executive order. Indeed, the U.S. Supreme Court recently and unanimously reversed the presidents abuse of power in making executive recess appointments that were not, in fact, during a congressional recess. There is ample evidence for the proposition that President Obama has fundamentally altered the Constitutional balance of power among the branches of government in ways that should be reversed. But is this a problem for which the courts are an appropriate solution? Unfortunately, for both legal and political reasons, the answer is no. And the sooner Speaker Boehner and his Republican colleagues realize that such a lawsuit against the president will be a legal failure and, like Senator Ted Cruzs attempt to shut down the federal government over Obamacare, a political bust, the better.

The report found that 63 percent of people who since last summer had obtained health coverage through the new Obamacare exchanges or via Medicaid were previously uninsured. The expansion of Medicaid benefits as well the phenomenon of previously eligible people enrolling in new coverage for the first time, significantly lowered the uninsured rate among the poor, the survey found. As of last summer, 33 percent of people who earn less than 100 percent of the federal poverty level, or $11,670 annually for an individual, were uninsured. That had fallen to 26 percent as of June, according to the survey. But most, if not all of that decrease came in the 25 states and the District of Columbiathat had expanded Medicaid eligibility by April. In those states and D.C., the uninsured rate among those poor people fell from 28 percent to 17 percent. In the so-called non-expansion states, which started from a much higher uninsured rate of 38 percent for those poor people last summer, the rate fell to 36 percent. But that was a statistically insignificant decrease, the survey’s authors said.
